Mark our words: Art deco is back in a big way. The perennially chic decor style never truly left favor for the ultra-chic, but lately, we're finding more and more ways to mix art deco design with the other buzzy looks — hello, midcentury modern — of the moment. If you've got a flair for the dramatic (guilty as charged), now's the time to incorporate art deco interior design into your own home. With an ever-increasing number of reproductions on the market, as well as modern online marketplaces to find original art deco pieces at far-from-prohibitive prices, achieving art deco style on a budget has never been easier.

The key to nailing the look is narrowing down your favorite art deco furniture pieces and home decor. Opt for plush textures (read: velvet) in rich jewel tones and rounded or scalloped silhouettes mixed with crisp repeating geometric patterns, preferably in brass. Pepper in some marble accents and your place will be ready for its close-up, in full 1930s (or 1980s, depending on your inspiration) glamour.
